lyrics

The sledgehammer
He takes me out in Vegas he's a wrestler
I forgot about 911

There's a child in all our hearts
And we must tailor
All the parts of our disguise

when you
Stare
At me through lenses
Stare
At me in the shop
Stare
At me when I can't
Quiet my own thoughts
Just stare.


Remember all the
Sundays at the ball game?
Do you do you remember on
the streets out by the sidelines?

with all these

Thoughts that I
Wanted to break with the palm of my hand
Seeping through my fingers like a tomato
I squished off a vine somewhere in France

Figure you've got me covered now
I don't want you anymore

oh
Stare!
At me through lenses
Stare
At me in the shop
Stare
At me when I can't
Quiet my own thoughts
Just stare

At me through lenses
at the shop
Stare
At me when I can't
Quiet my own thoughts,
Just stare
